Many international students are terrified with the idea of having to study something technical in order to qualify for sponsorship.
Others have just found themselves doing an MBA or some other business related subject, and they’ve started to realise this isn’t something that’ll offer sponsorship.
So they start to feel trapped.
But it doesn’t have to be this way,
Yes it’s true the job market always appreciates those with STEM knowledge & skilled workers. (science, tech, engineering, maths).
But STEM sectors as a whole are growing which means there are a lot of jobs being created in these fields and they are not all technical jobs!
Companies will look for people who can work in different positions in order to cater for this fast paced growth,

Digital Project Manager
In this role you’ll be working on some exciting digital projects, working with the development team to make sure everything is in line with the set goal, and the work is on schedule.
